summer emotional day camp

activities, safety, protocols and cancellation rules.

We have integrated the Procicat Covid-19 procedures at La Granja since the summer of 2020. Last year was the moment of truth and we learned not only how to guarantee a safe environment but also to provide the powerful and intense atmosphere of bonding and trust that is our trademark. As proved by the KIDS CORONA de SJD scientific study, summer camps are safe spaces for children to relate and live together.

It is important to fulfill children’s vital need to be in contact with nature, especially the forest (walking through the woods for 4 hours improves our immunological system). Interacting with other children in shared spaces has become urgent in our present context of a pandemic.

Many things are forbidden. But let us focus on what we are allowed to do… and MAKE THE MOST OF IT for the wellbeing of our children. Let’s be brave and show confidence, since this is what they need most now.

Our proposal? Training in emotional management, with activities carried out in the middle of the Montseny Natural park; both fun and intense, with the use of horses, farm animals, and adventure activities that will provide children and teenagers with practical tools for their everyday experience. Resources that will also be shared by parents, by the way!!!

The Summer Day Camp at La Granja is one of our most potent activities due to its design and duration, upto 5 weeks in July and 2 weeks in August. They are fun, powerful, intense and safe, with trained accredited professionals who work at La Granja all year round.

This year we will focus on emptying out the negative emotions produced by the lockdown (fear, anger, anxiety and sadness) to leave space for filling in with positive emotions such as calm, joy, patience, excitement and courage.

You can be reassured that they are in good hands with us because everything we do has a reason that goes beyond what is usually expected… every activity has a specific purpose, to help them discover their talents, abilities and skills, which are very often hidden. We talk about things such as empathy, to help them understand each other; and self-esteem, to acquire a good feeling about themselves; and positive communication which is vital for having healthy social relations; and team work which is essential for everyday living; and inner strength which we all want for our children because we know it will help them get up when they fall.

The ability to concentrate, to listen and to speak, to help others, to overcome fears, to do things without needing the presence of an adult, to solving conflicts, to loosing the fear of speaking up about their concerns, to expressing affection… all this is what we mean by Emotional Education.

This is what we do every summer, also offering a daily Bus Service. And we can proudly say this is what we do because a Scientific Study performed by the GROP (Research Group in Educational Orientation)  of the University of Barcelona has proved our results. After passing through La Granja children have increased self-awareness (acknowledging their skills), improved self-confidence and trust in others, higher self-esteem and level of emotional regulation; in other words, they are capable of regulating their behaviour better when they don’t get what they want. This also comes with a degree of training in courage, which we all need, and they will have the chance to put into play in a safe environment surrounded by a feeling of wellbeing.

It is traditional every summer to have a common thread which is portrayed in the form of a story that that will be read by both parents and children during the Summer camp. It will be an extraordinary story that will develop during these days which you will be able to follow from home, because we want the camp experience with us to be shared by children and parents!!!
